The multiplayer however is crap. I played a bit more of it today and although it's not as glitchy as it was the other day (at least it works now), I have a new problem with it. It's a cash grab. Everything about it screams cash grab. You lose money (about $2000 I think) whenever you die, even if you're in a deathmatch! Everything costs more than it's single player counterpart too, a silencer for your pistol will set you back a few grand. And if you find a good sports car, you can't customise or keep it. I took a Porsche to my garage but it was "too hot to modify". I could however, keep it if I bought it from the in game internet for even more money.
They stressed that paying with real money would be optional and it is, but the game does everything possible to make life difficult for you if you don't.
The "bad sport" system is stupid too. I needed to repair my car but somebody was driving around the garage and he killed me three times. I did manage to kill him and get inside (but only after losing half my money because of him). I repair my car, drive out, and guess who's waiting to greet me? He kills me and leaves the car damaged, meaning I'd have to spend even more money repairing it again.
At this point I'd had enough so when I respawned I shot him and took his car, driving it into the sea. And the game fucking told me off for it. Apparently because that was his "personal vehicle", I was a "bad sport". The game took even more money off me, giving it to the other player, and told me that if I carried on this way I'd only be allowed to play with other "bad sports".
At this point I put the disc away and played FIFA for half an hour. I can't see myself ever playing the online again.
I bet R* are very happy that they treated the multiplayer as a seperate release. Somehow if the game had launched with a terrible, broken cash grab online mode I don't think it would've gotten as many 10/10 reviews.
I agree with you totally. I think the multiplayer is ambitious but poorly executed. It's just not fun enough. There are far better third person deathmatches on the market as well, chief of them being Uncharted 2, which is ace.
On top of that the iFruit app still hasn't been released for Android and Windows. I doubt they'll even bother now seeing as most people have finished the story mode. I think R* have made an absolute hash of this from start to finish.
CEX are currently buying GTA V for £36 trade in for cash. I may take them up on that on monday and save that money for Arkham Origins in a few weeks.
Up and down, the game is plagued with problems. Even the gameplay becomes repetitive. 700 missions? Wow, what a number! Too bad they get incredibly monotonous and dull after the fifth one you play. Want to rank up fast? Hope you like playing the same race again and again and again and again to do so! I did two races over and over all day yesterday and went from rank 28 to 40. They just got incredibly overzealous with their Online, talking up all the features and ideas and abilities, and the junk didn't even work for most people for over three days.
Now with this patch, it's time to see if my character got deleted like so many others did. If that's the case, I'll be trading the game in immediately. No questions asked, no restarting, I'll be completely done with it forever.
That's good. Yeah, it doesn't negate how dull the online is. Really upsetting.
I also agree with everyone who states that it lacks fun. The multiplayer is often more frustrating than anything else, and leaves little reward when you do succeed. The thing that makes me most angry is the "bad sport" feature. If someone is killing you endlessly, and you do something about it, you apparently get called a "bad sport", something I find very stupid, especially for a damn multiplayer where you race illegally, rob people and institutions, kill people to collect drugs, and fight for supremacy with guns in your hands. Don't you think that all our characters are bad sports if they do that? How are you a "good sport" while being a murderous thief? I've even had moments where I was working on doing missions, and right out of nowhere, the group of players I was in session with kicked me, taking me right out of what I was playing without notice. I hadn't even killed any of them, or taunted them; they just felt like being immature.
And in all, I am just dissatisfied. After playing for a few hours, my sole favorite thing about this experience is the fact that John Marston is my character's father. It doesn't get much better than that.
Have you played The Last Of Us?
Let's just say the the story of RDR was one of the best I'd sat through.
The Last Of Us blows it out the water. I can't say anymore than that it is simply jaw dropping.
I haven't played The Last Of Us though so that might be better.
I honestly can't recommend it enough.
Best I've played is the Assassin's Creed multiplayer. Proper tense stuff.
I would play it as I really enjoyed the Uncharted games but my ps3 broke last year.
Couldn't agree more, and I'm happy to see people recognizing that Rockstar is far from perfect with this massive let-down. Even the single player didn't have me excited, as I've previously posted.
All of the marketing and promos pushing the innovative heists in GTA V, and it turned out there are only four of them in the entire game.
When I was in the middle of the single player I did think it was the best in the series but I'm not so sure now. The multiplayer was awful and thinking about it now I'm not sure if the single player was that brilliant either. I think it's a toss up between GTA V and Vice City really.
GTA V had great combat, Vice City had the brilliant 80s setting. GTA V had Trevor, Vice City had Ray Liotta and Ken Rosenburg. GTA V had tons of cars, planes and helicopters, Vice City had katanas, flamethrowers, chainsaws, etc. Vice City did have dodgy combat and an irritating lack of mission checkpoints but then GTA V has crap multiplayer and terrible helicopter controls. GTA V has cool bank heists, Vice City has the speed mission.
Overall I think GTA V edges it but I don't think it's as good as I first thought.
Even after a patch, the servers are still screwed. I did a SOLO SESSION to play by myself, and end up having people join my race somehow that I'm trying to spam for XP. Such a joke.
It is strange how your opinion of a game can change during the course of playing it. My enthusiasm for it had waned by the time I'd finished it and I had the chance to reflect on it's pros and cons. After five years in the making, I was expecting so much more from it.
There weren't as many of them as I thought (I expected the whole story to revolve around them), but the heists were cool.
Charging through a small town with a mini gun trying to escape tons of cops and military, skydiving onto a goverment building then abseiling down to escape, racing through tunnels on motorbikes after robbing a jewel store, etc.
I thought they were really fun.
@0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, same with the pigeon collectibles in GTA IV: every time you killed one, you got a wanted level. It just took way too long for anything in this game: leveling up stats (both online and offline), acquiring money (both online and offline), and ranking up (online). It just seems incredibly overzealous. I look forward to getting these last three achievements and getting rid of the game.
It's well worth the money and it's a brilliant game imo. Well worth the 38 quid I paid for it. Just has crap multiplayer.
Why does it have to be some sort of mission or objective? Why not steal a fighter jet and go around destroying stuff because it's fun?
Just drive through alleys or off road.
I'm just grateful that this one actually has planes. Annoyed me when they took them out for IV.
